I was ecstatic when the team from Biltong@za suggested I use oxtail for my monthly recipe developing. I immediately wanted to make the most tender, fall-off-the-bone-oxtail.
This oxtail recipe is an amazingly, surprisingly easy recipe – even more so when you notice that the actual time you will spend in the kitchen is about 30 minutes, prepping. The real challenge here is the 4 – 5 hours you will have to wait before enjoying this tender, juicy meat .
I decided to go the plain route – garlic, herbs and red wine – succulent pieces of oxtail slow cooked for about 5 hours in this aromatic sauce, served with smashed cauliflower (because, banting) and rainbow carrots. Of course you can serve it with potato mash or rice too if you are not low carb inclined…
This Fall-off-the-bone Oxtail recipe is perfect for a wintery Sunday lunch, where you can work in some quality time with the family while this fragrant stew fills your home with aromas of comfort and all kinds of deliciousness.
